I first starting following Tammy’s blog when I began exploring simplicity and living a simpler life. When I came across her photography practice of her morning view, I was inspired by how she captured the world around her. I think the coolest part of observing her practice was how she used photography to practice gratitude, something I was trying to do as well given the challenges of every day life.
I questioned whether I really wanted to pursue a photography practice, or if this is something new that I was excited about for a short while. Tammy’s Everyday Magic course was a really reasonably priced, effective way for me to explore an interest in photography, and I’m happy to say it was a great introduction to the basics of photography and has helped me cultivate my own photography practice.
The three best parts of the course for me were:
- the way that Tammy broke down the course material, presented the information clearly, and added some cute stories and pictures to go along with the discussion
- the community of classmates who were very encouraging and helpful. We’re still in contact via the Facebook group and I think that was the major catalyst for me to enjoy the process of taking pictures – because I had people to share photos with and discuss our learning process.
- how the photography practice I started in this class has forced me to slow down and notice the world around me, and started nurturing not only a gratitude practice, but also a focus on mindfulness or presence.
I highly recommend taking Tammy’s course if you’re new to photography or even a seasoned photographer. I took 100% of my photos with my iPhone and was super excited to learn that you don’t need a fancy camera to take great photos. Tammy’s class gives you the tools to get started with your own practice.
